My husband and I spent a week in this hotel. It was lovely, with modern rooms and comfy beds. We also lucked out with a nice view of the channel. The restaurant was not cheap, but the service and food were excellent. The downstairs pub also had some good food with nightly specials. The staff and concierge were very helpful, friendly and ran a shuttle to the central train station nearby. It was also very easy to catch the local train to and from central station, actually only one stop away from the hotel. we took our daily side trips to Harlem and elsewhere quite easily. Most of your day trips are quite easily done by train, so this was a perfect place for us without being in any downtown noise.
